Craig Fleener was a 2014 independent candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Alaska.[1] Fleener and his running mate Bill Walker filed as independents, thus avoiding a primary election challenge against Republican incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell. In September 2014, Walker joined Democratic gubernatorial primary winner Byron Mallott on the Alaska Unity Ticket, dropping his Republican affiliation and Fleener as his running mate in the process.[2]

Fleener previously served as as Deputy Commissioner of Fish and Game. When Walker selected Fleener as his running mate for lieutenant governor in October 2013, Fleener resigned his post in order to enter the race.[3]

Fleener ran for election to the office of Lieutenant Governor. He was supposed to share the independent ticket with running mate and gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker, but he was forced to withdraw from the race prior to the general election. A September 1 vote of the Alaska Democratic Party central committee merged the Walker-led independent ticket with the Democratic ticket, pushing both Fleener and Democratic lieutenant gubernatorial nominee Hollis French off the ballot.[4] The general election takes place November 4, 2014.
